Flutters & Flowers~

The flutters rest their silken wings,
drawn by the sweetly fragrant flowers.
The flowers beckon,
so the flutters fly.
And the garden sings,
with the joy of spring!
Cheers to you from the flutters & flowers~

      1. Toronto weather is forecast to plunge from +20 to -1 by Tuesday.
        Then up to +10 here by Saturday!
        It’s not unprecedented, but it’s not normal.

    1. Well I am honored, and I also must sincerely say that I am so completely impressed with the soul and intelligence behind your series on the impact of WWII on Japanese people, both in Japan and the US. I see this series as an important book. So the respect is very mutual. Thank you~

    1. Yes, I have definitely noticed this. Not so much the camera making things more beautiful than they are, but rather enabling us to see aspects of things we cannot see with our weak eyes. Macros are a good example because they are magnified and allow us to see details we cannot normally see~

    1. Laughing! These butterflies are only here for a month a year in an Aviary at the Wild Animal Park. Besides, I know you live in paradise. You travel the world!!!!

  1. These photos are absolutely fabulous! So colorful. I love the Iris. .. need to id that one, worth having in the garden. I would love to be a house guest of yours. . So many beautiful things in your hood. πŸ˜ƒ

  2. Your photos are amazing, gorgeous, awesome! But how do you get the butterflies to pose for you? I must be doing something wrong because I always catch half a wing πŸ™‚

  3. Cindy, that’s the most wonderful fluttery combination I have seen for a long time. Absolutely outstanding! Gosh, they are so beautiful. πŸ™‚

      1. Cindy, I mean it. Your flowers are breathtaking. I used to grow beared Irises (we’ve had this conversation already) and to see yours, I really miss mine. The Food of the Gods, or Goddesses as some would say. Perfect captures. πŸ™‚ xx And you are so welcome, mon ami!

  5. OK, I’m starting to get the hang of this thing now, at least confident enough to try to start using it !
    There was one pic where it was hard to tell the flutter from the flower. How did you coax all three of them to pose on the same flower for you…??? ..using that charm you use on the hummers?
    Beautiful pics, Cindy.

  6. Those iris flowers are gorgeous but take a ‘back seat’ to the beauty of the butterflies! This makes me feel more like Spring, than anything else I have seen today on other’s blogs! Absolutely beautiful ‘captures’ and thanks for sharing the photos with us, Cindy!
